Publisher's Summary

Ellie Ballantyne, youngest child of Silas and Eden, has left finishing school. But back at her family home in Pittsburgh, Ellie finds that her parents are away on a long trip, and her siblings don't seem to want her to stay. When she opens a day school for young ladies, she begins tutoring the incorrigible daughter of the enemy Turlock clan. The Turlocks are slaveholders and whiskey magnates, envious of the powerful Ballantynes and suspicious of their abolitionist leanings.

As Ellie becomes increasingly tangled with the Turlocks, she finds herself falling in love with an impossible future - and Jack Turlock, a young man striving to free himself from his family's violent legacy. How can she betray her family and side with the enemy? And will Jack ever allow her into his world?

Frantz is always a good choice!

I've said it before and it's worth saying again....Laura Frantz books have become my choice when I'm looking for a good clean romance story that's loaded with history. This series is a wonderful example of great writing and narration. There are so many poignant moments and memorable characters that I am looking forward to listening to the next book. 😉

Frantz does it again

I really enjoyed Laura Frantz #2 book in this series as much as the 1st. Great characters, good morals, with just the right amount of spice. Looking forward to listening to #3!

Outstanding!

I thoroughly enjoyed this audio version of Love’s Awakening by Laura Frantz! I loved Jack, Ellie, and Chloe (and, of course, Silas and Eden) and the way their characters grew in the story! The reader was exceptional with her Scottish accents and added so much to my enjoyment! I highly recommend this book!

Wonderful book

Stepping back in time with Ellie and Jack love story, I enjoyed hearing the Scottish accent and quotes from books. Even the food they ate like cherry pudding. I could stop listening to it.
